King of Great Britain and Ireland (born 1738) from 1760 until his death in 1820. His reign was marked most notably by the loss of British control over the American colonies. Advancing mental illness rendered George unable to fulfill his official duties during the last decade of his life, during which time the Prince Regent, William IV, ruled in his stead. Partial ALS signed “George R,” on a 7 x 3 slip partially affixed to a same-sized slip, May 19, 1786. George writes to his son, Frederick. In part: “[…] put a flying seal to it that you may peruse it before you deliver it and the letters to him. I ever remain, My Dear Frederick, your most affectionate Father….” In very good condition, with vertical folds (one to signature), a few small chips and tears, and light wrinkling. R&R COA.
